    I have encountered exactly the same problem. I have FSX Gold and have been happily using it with Windows 10. But it has now started telling me, on start-up, that there is an error. And, when I...

    FSX Terror

    I have recently started to get the message, when opening FSX, that 'an error occurred while attempting to activate the product'. I have over-ridden this but after c30 minutes the flight cuts out...

    Thanks! I've tried re-calibrating but without success. However, I'll try getting away from the saved flight and creating a new flight from scratch. Grateful for your help!

    I use a joystick. And, yes, I am using a saved flight. I keep my main aircraft and location as the default saved flight and adjust that each time as necessary. I recently made another...

    Problems Taxi-ing

    Can anyone help, please, with advice on an irritating little matter on FSX. I'm experiencing a problem with my downloaded A320s. They fly OK - in fact, better than OK. But I can't get them to...

    Real-World Weather in FSX

    I've been using real-time weather in FSX for some time and without problems. But recently I've found that certain locations - especially those around London (UK) - seem to have become locked into...

    Lost Airports

    I've been downloading and installing airports onto FS2004 from flightsim.com. At some point I must have done something wrong as I seem to have lost all the airports in Europe south of Marseilles and...

    Help with FS2K2 ATC Needed

    I have been using FS2K2's ATC system for over a year now, and it's pretty good despite some deficiencies. But there is one problem which recurs and for which I would like, if possible, to find a...

    RE: Control Tower on top of Aircraft!!

    Funny you should say that!! I do have Active Camera installed, though I don't use it. And I did wonder whether AC had anything to do with the problem when I did a Spot Plane in flight yesterday and...

    Control Tower on top of Aircraft!!

    I wonder whether anyone can help me with correcting a phenomenon which has suddenly manifested itself.

    I've recently had to uninstall and re-install FS2002. The re-installation has gone fine -...

    RE: When to start descending

    I agree with the others - your main problem seems to be your rate of descent and air speed. The "3.5 nm-per 1,000 feet" rule of thumb is a good one, though I personally use 3nm (it's easier to...
  14. RE: Two Separate Problems - Engine Power and Nosewheel Collapse

    Hi

    Thanks for the reply, but I'm a bit puzzled as there's nothing in my private e-mail - [email protected] Did you send something to that address?

    Kind Regards

  15. Two Separate Problems - Engine Power and Nosewheel Collapse

    I've recently installed an excellent freeware BAe146 model, but I have had two problems. One is that it is under-powered. Though acceleration seems fine at lower altitudes, above about 15000 feet...

    RE: ATC IFR Cancelled

    I think the previous posts have more or less covered it. I used to experience this problem. I have devised some rules of my own which might be of help to you.

    RE: time acceleration

    I hadn't thought of doing that. If I click on Save Flight after, say, an hour and a half of a six hour flight and give it a name, will it re-start where I left off when I next access that flight? ...
  18. RE: So it could be Bye bye to the Concorde?????.

    I agree with what you say about the demise of the turboprop. To me the ultimate passenger aircraft was the Britannia.

    However, I would like to add two points. First, while jet airliners do not,...

    RE: The Default Trim Setting

    Hi Joan, and thank you for your suggestion.

    I've had a look through the list of assignments, and I don't see a key for neutralising the trim setting. Did you have any particular key in mind?

    RE: The Default Trim Setting

    I don't think this will deal with the problem. I always set my default vertical speeds to 500, simply to avoid a sudden nose-down when I adjust the altimeter downwards to begin the descent. I then...

    RE: The Default Trim Setting

    Alastair

    Thank you. My experience is that the majority of aircraft have their trim set nose-up rather than nose-down. The default 737-400 in FS2002 is a case in point.

    I agree with what you...

    The Default Trim Setting

    Downloaded aircraft seem to come with a variety of trim settings. While it is possible to adjust the trim (by using NumPad 7 or 1), as soon as the autopilot is engaged the trim reverts to the...

    VOR2 Dial Shows Speed Rather Than VOR/DME

    The VOR 2 dial on my 737 panel has started showing KTS instead of NM. This comes after a re-install of FS2002 and a normal flight. This phenomenon has happened to me before (some time ago), but I...
